Groups file complaint against far-right politician for 'transphobic' post targeting Cannes winner

  • Six organisations defending LGBT+ rights say they have filed a complaint for "transphobic insult" against far-right French politician Marion Maréchal, after comments targeting Cannes-winning transgender actress. Transgender actress Karla Sofia Gascon received, along with the Americans Selena Gomez and Zoe Saldana as well as the Mexican Adriana Paz, a joint Best Actress prize on Saturday at the 77th Cannes Film Festival for the film Emilia Perez by French director Jacques Audiard.Gascon – the fir

Narco sex-change musical early favourite at Cannes

An intriguing musical about a Mexican drug lord escaping the narco life with a sex change -- featuring Selena Gomez in a supporting role -- premiered at Cannes on Saturday.The plot for "Emilia Perez" initially sounded too crazy even for France's shape-shifting master director Jacques Audiard, who previously won the festival's top prize Palme d'Or in 2015.But gushing reviews suggest Audiard may be a favourite to win again as the competition reaches its halfway point. The film stars Zoe Saldana, of "Avatar" and "Guardians of the Galaxy", as a lawyer enlisted by the cartel boss who has always wanted to be a woman. There were rave reviews for 52-year-old trans actor Karla Sofia Gascon in the title role. Gascon transitioned at 46 having already built a family and a career in Spanish-language films and soap operas, and has written a book about her experiences with homophobia and transphobia.Gomez plays the boss's unsuspecting wife in a surprisingly gritty turn for the mega-selling popstar-turned-actor. - Frontrunner -This year's Cannes, which concludes on May 25, has seen two American veteran directors deliver end-of-life testaments -- Francis Ford Coppola's deeply divisive "Megalopolis" and Paul Schrader's deathbed tale, "Oh, Canada".But Audiard has delivered a film that is bursting with youthful exuberance and audacious entertainment, as catchy reggaeton, Mexican tunes and French chanson are subtly mixed into a drama that tackles gender identity, gang violence and disappearances. Deadline called it "crazy, but also a marvel", while The Hollywood Reporter said it was "fresh, full of vitality and affecting". The director won the Palme d'Or in 2015 for refugee story "Dheepan" and has made a series of very different and critically lauded films, including "The Prophet", "Rust and Bone" and "The Sisters Brothers". "Emilia Perez" seems well-suited to impress this year's jury president, Greta Gerwig, known for her own musical hit, "Barbie".The film was part-financed by Saint Laurent, the first fashion house to build a fully fledged film production company into its activities. Saint Laurent also backed two other lauded directors who are competing at Cannes: David Cronenberg's "The Shrouds" and Paolo Sorrentino's "Parthenope" will both premiere in the coming days. bur-fbe/er/ah/bc
